First Trimester Bleeding: Everything To Know

About:


Over 90% of women who experience first trimester vaginal bleeding don’t miscarry.


About 20% of women have some bleeding during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. [1]



- Requires vaginal and abdominal ultrasound imaging
- Can be spotting or severe bleeding


First trimester bleeding is common. It’s usually lighter in flow than a menstrual period. Also, the color often varies from pink to red to brown. Possible causes include implantation bleeding; miscarriage; ectopic pregnancy; molar pregnancy; cervical changes; and infection of cervix, vagina, and a sexually transmitted disease.


Symptoms:


Self-diagnosable:
Use a pad to keep track of the bleeding, record the type of blood (pink, brown, or red; smooth or full of clots). Store any tissue that passes through the vagina for testing. Don't use a tampon or have sex while bleeding.


People may experience:
Severe pain or intense cramps in lower abdomen, dizziness or fainting, fever or chills.


Treatment:


Self-care: Bed rest, stay well hydrated, limit physical activity, feet in elevated position, avoid lifting items over 10 pounds, and contact OB-GYN.


Medications: Rh-negative pregnant women may require an injection of anti-D immunoglobulin. Other suitable medications to follow.
